Bryan Chaffin and Andrew Orr join host Kelly Guimont to talk about what you can do about the Capital One data breach, and iOS bugs.
Google’s security team Project Zero recently found six “interactionless” iOS bugs. If sold on the black market they would be worth over US$5 million.
According to the researcher, four of the six security bugs can lead to the execution of malicious code on a remote iOS device, with no user interaction needed. All an attacker needs to do is to send a malformed message to a victim’s phone, and the malicious code will execute once the user opens and views the received item.
The flaw lets a hacker make changes to a file without informing the operating system.
He says that Apple works to patch iOS bugs, but doesn’t work to fix the underlying issues that contribute to these bugs
